Covid-19

The arrival of Covid-19 shifted everything for us here in Lesotho – as it did in countries around the world! At The Hub in Morija, we closed all indoor operations in March 2020. We transitioned into online activism, creating open-source, multimedia Covid-19 educational content in Sesotho, all available as free downloads from our website.
